Not typically talked about in the discussions about the top ten of the Spring 77 tour, this show is, to me, more than worthy of at least an honorable mention.
No Betty Board of this one, which is a true shame given the overall largeness of this fantastic performance. However, this MOTB is more that up to the task of conveying the power of yet another 77 masterpiece. Now while there are some talkers in the first, the show's Tyson-like uppercut to the chin quickly makes you forget these random bozos. Yes, it has Terrapin (y'all know my feelings about that tune), but if I have to listen to one, the fresh 77's are the way to go as Jerry's voice can still handle the song.

Great Friday candidate for a good ol' chair-whuppin.

Thanks SDH, I really must get over my fear of anything that's not a Soundboard. This really is worth listening to, some gems in the first, and a stonking second set.

Stonking?

I have no idea what that means, but I still love it.

'(context, mostly, UK) impressively large; exciting; used by glider pilots to describe excellent weather conditions'

There are other definitions you can probably guess at but this is a family forum - I have no idea about glider pilots.

Ironically, I just listened to a big chunk of this two days ago on an old Grateful Dead Listening Guide Podcast. It played Terrapin through the end of the show. Definitely worth a listen. Fear not the audience recording.

I particularly like the transition from a short, but dissonant, Playin' to Franklin's. And, I could be hearing things, but there is a point just before the opening Franklin's chords where it sounds like the opening chords of Foolish Heart. It's about the first 15 seconds on the Rob Bertrando recording. Reminds me of Bobby dropping the Weather Report Suite chords in 1971. A good idea to build on someday down the road.

HUH? I thought China Doll didn't get brought back until 12-29-77 ( one of my favorite DP's )

This show has long been on my top five for the year. The transition from playin to franklins is particularly beautiful and is one of those "blends" where you REALLY cannot tell where one song ends and the other begins.

I was lucky enough to be at this one ( my 3rd )! I sure wish a SBD would bubble up from the swamp, but this is a pretty good AUD . This is a great show , in a year of lots great shows , but should not be overlooked ; my God , just look at that 2nd set !
The lack of a SBD, it being overshadowed by the Winterland run, and the end of the great Spring tour, and some lingering anti-LA bias ; has made this more obscure that it has any business being . Listen !
